From what we’ve already seen of Loic Remy in a black and white shirt, it’s little surprise that he was the number one choice to replace Demba Ba in January, and we have been after this player for six years, and if he had come to Tyneside nine months ago, instead of doing a detour to that small club in London, who knows what would have happened in the second half of last season?
Loic Remy – sign him in January
But Newcastle have finally got their man, albeit on loan, but Loic seems to have fitted into the side perfectly, and the 26 year-old is already a popular player in the dressing room, and if he keeps playing like he did on Saturday then well need to sing this lad full-time in January
We looked back in our archives and the first time Loic is mentioned is in September of 2007 , six years ago this month, when it looked like we would be signing the then 20 year-old French U21 International in the following January.
Take a read of that article for a trip down memory lane, as Mike Ashley had only just bought the club.
If we do end up signing Remy, that’s six years on from when it looked like we could have signed him in January of 2008.

We did a similar thing when Ben Arfa was on loan at the club for a season long loan deal thee years ago, so we should sign Loic up before other bigger clubs realize what a good player he is.
January 1st would be a good time to do that.
